The BMW Z4 Roadster Convertible uses Electric Power Steering but not in the traditional sense, rather, the Electrical Steering Feature of this vehicle is only activated when there's actual steering going on.

Saving fuel while generating energy for the battery at the same time is oxymoronic but it is a fact for this car. Take for instance its Brake Energy Regeneration Feature. This simply means that coasting allows the car to save fuel while generating energy for the batteries. The traditional method for running the alternator still required fuel but not while this feature is embedded into the vehicle mechanical designs. Old types of tires, as all drivers know, changes shape as the cars takes a drive down the highway. This problem is even more compounded while driving on rough terrain which increases fuel consumption. The solution to this problem is by reducing the rolling resistance, which BMW did with the tires. The last feature that saves fuel is the lightweight body of the vehicle. For obvious reasons, light materials like aluminum are used in places where they are fit. The vehicle also uses engines made of aluminum. All this weight reduction contributes to lesser load on the axles, contributing to better agility and improves driving all over.
